This is the sort of nationalistic jingo driven propaganda I have come to expect from the motuh breathers that watch sports.
They won't suit up and go fight against a real threat, such as a military industrial complex that invents a foreign boogieman to toss our youth of the fire of conflict over.
They will just sit on their fat asses and smother Broyhill sofas with wet beer farts while screeching like pubescent apes at the huge obelisk of the TV through out the smoke and mirrors of reality.
Good jerb, boys.
Fight the good fight. Heep those chips and pretzels coming. We're runnin' out of snacks over here.

Enjoy the game. The good people of the arms manufacturing sector are counting on you.

Peak football hipster. I was hating sports before it was cool man, you're just jumping in the bandwagon of hating sports.

DAE think we spend too much on stadiums? DAE think sports is slavery? Hot takes here on "The 6" on Fark.

I think it's more insulting than honoring when the coaches all dress up like they're WWII officers.

Villanueva was part of two divisions, 10th Mountain and 75th Ranger Regiment, and served in Afghanistan before becoming an NFL player.

All right. Does the US Army have like 2 or 3 actual full divisions? I'm beginning to think the 45th Infantry Platoon is an actual thing. Battle decorations for Anzio, Salerno, and a street corner in Qatar.

Can you make the decals big enough to cover their vision entirely?  I'm just asking because I think the only way the Colts can possibly win is if the entire Steelers team is blind.

[uncoolstorybro] The monolith was what I called my old vacuumtube TV [from the 1960s]  in the 1980s.  Didn't use it much, watching with my parents made more sense than that old thing.[/uncoolstorybro]

Too much patriotism for the NFL. I'd go at least $25K per helmet.  With $5K kick every time the emblem makes it on screen.

That being said, maybe his time would be better spent practicing how to stop people trying to run past him.

Ugh, how about holding up some non-leg decals for the photo?

FTFA: Villanueva was part of two divisions, 10th Mountain and 75th Ranger Regiment, and served in Afghanistan before becoming an NFL player.

The writer and editor each need to proofread better. I'm not asking for perfection or a deep level of knowledge here but information in that sentence contradicted previous stuff from that very same sentence.

Also FTFA: Villanueva would have loved to have used Navy decals, but that's a football rival.

"I'm not going to reach out to Navy football -- under no circumstances," he said.


Good, fark 'em.

"There's tension between the veteran community and the NFL. You go to VFWs, and they won't show NFL games," Villanueva said. "[Veterans] don't know if it's, 'Do we have to live in a utopian, perfect country for you to stand up for the national anthem?' It's a very tough concept for a lot of veterans to understand."

Maybe if military bases and VFWs didn't constantly have Fox News on, they wouldn't have such stupid opinions.

BTW, the answer is "you have to at least try to pretend you want justice or equality."

All this could've been fixed if we had independent reviews of situations where excessive violence is used by police (or citizens are killed). Instead we have a bunch of cops unions going around demanding that they not be questioned and telling us about how hard their job is so how dare anyone judge them. Then they get a couple weeks off, maybe fired, even, and nothing else happens to them.

Sh*t's unacceptable no matter what race you are.

I mean, look at all the security theater we do at airports and NFL stadiums - we can't at least PRETEND we care about legitimate investigations into deaths caused by cops?

I have no problem with the rank-and-file military men and women who do a very tough job.  I have a huge problem with the military industrial complex and the concept that we're not allowed to question the people making the decisions that put those rank-and-file human beings in harms way.  So I absolutely question the activities of corrupt officers and Industry execs and politicians, and so should you.
